Korea Shopping Haul

Saturday, May 11, 2013

Most of you are probably wondering how much shopping budget to aside when visiting South Korea. 
I've prepared a Korea shopping haul so you will (more or less) get an idea on how much things cost in Seoul. (Note, however, that most of the stuff I bought are from small stores in Hongdae/Myeongdong). See post about Hongdae, here. I didn't buy from the usual/popular brands like H&M, Uniqlo, Basic House, etc... because items there will surely be more expensive.

I consider myself as a frugal shopper so I do think twice before heading to the cashier. And as you can see, I made it a point to just get one of each: one pair of shoes, one bag, one pair of shorts, one wallet and a few accessories. Are you a frugal shopper too? What do you consider a good mix of items when shopping?
